Unmanaged Switches for IP67 ApplicationsMurrelektronik_Tree67-4port

Murrelektronik’s new TREE67 unmanaged switches – equipped with four or eight M12 ports – are suitable for applications in harsh industrial environments. They make it possible to cost-effectively implement decentralized machine concepts in star topologies.

Ruggedized modules for PROFIBUSTitel_PB1081L_LioN-R_PSL_Press_45826.jpg

Belden presents new ruggedized LioN-R modules for PROFIBUS from its Lumberg Automation™ product range. The fully enclosed metal housing can withstand mechanical stress as well as welding sparks and filings, aggressive coolants and lubricants.

PROFIBUS Slave Modules Optimized for ControlLogix SystemsSST_PB3S_CLX_RLL_2

Molex announces the release of the latest SST Profibus communication modules. They use a custom Add On Profile, easing integration into the controller. The modules also support: repeater, data swap, auto-run, legacy ID, error codes, LEDs, and scrolling LCD display.

Multiprotocol In-Cabinet, Block I/OFEN20_med

TURCK is expanding its line of in-cabinet, block I/O stations with the addition of the FEN20 I/O stations for Industrial Ethernet. This first release in a family of FEN20 I/O stations is available with 16 configurable I/O, power isolation between I/O zones, and an embedded Ethernet switch to support a variety of application topologies.

IP67 Digital Compact Ethernet ModuleHarshIO-Ethernet-M8-Compact_250px

Brad HarshIO compact Ethernet modules offer a smooth and easy transition to PROFINET connectivity for machine builders currently using PROFIBUS. Narrow 30mm housings are well suited to compact machines where space is limited.

Ethernet Media Converters ideal for PROFINET57536_4000_int_04

From Phoenix Contact: the FL MC 2000E SM40 LC Ethernet media converter completes the class of optical converters for use in energy technology. Ethernet pass through mode supports very short delay times of just 700 ns, also making the media converters ideal for use in time-critical applications such as PROFINET.
